Light Novel / Telepathy Shoujo Ran

Go To
Ran & Midori
Isozaki Ran is an energetic and sporty middle school student who had the gift of premonition since she was a little kid. Her powers really come into fruition once she meets Naha Midori, a girl who transfers into her school and attends the same class she does. Actually she had already heard the girl's voice in her head before that, saying "I found you" and that "it will begin very soon".

Ran discovers through her interactions with Midori that she has tremendous telepathic and telekinetic powers, just like Midori herself. The only trouble is that the two girls don't hit it off well at first. They get a mutual understanding though once they decide to face an adversary with similar abilities, who at one point kidnaps Rui, Ran's boyfriend who possesses certain powers as well.

The series, fully called Telepathy Shoujo Ran Jiken Note, describes how Ran deals with her newly found abilities and how it affects her relationship with her friends and family, mostly in an "adventure per episode" format. The stuff Ran, Midori and Rui have to deal with ranges from fairly mundane school troubles, through low-key detective work to run-ins with local godhoods.

The show, which NHK aired in the latter half of 2008, is generally light-hearted family fun, with a strong-willed female lead and ditto friends.



  • I Am a Monster: Midori and Momoko both think that psychics are freaks and monsters and that ordinary people won't accept them. This doesn't quite mean being a Boomerang Bigot; rather, their philosophy is to set themselves apart from ordinary humans. In Momoko's case, this extends to lashing out with her powers.
  • Selective Obliviousness: Rin doesn't seem to notice Midori's crush on him, even though she doesn't exactly keep it a secret.
    • He probably has noticed, but either doesn't take it seriously, or decided to ignore it, since he's looking for a girlfriend his age. An aversion of the Lolicon trope, if you wish.
  • Sequel Hook: Ran hears another voice in the end, saying the same thing Midori did.
  • Spoiler Opening: It is immediately shown that Ran and Midori will be on good footing.
  • Take My Hand!: Numerous times.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Ran & Midori.
  • Tsundere: Midori just doesn't know how to be a friend, so when Ran drags her into friendship, she tends to be a little awkward and mask it with tsundere behavior.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: Ran, Midori and Rui.
  • Weirdness Censor: Yamashita-kun, who is helped by Ran's powers but still can't believe it.
